Orange peel not only adds its unique citrus flavor, but also contributes medicinal
and healthy properties to your teas. When we peel the orange to eat the fruit,
we throw away important enzymes, anti-inflammatory flavonoids, and nutrients
that concentrate in the peel.
The dried peel of both sweet and bitter orange is a vital component of your herbal
tea shelf, as it is used in endless combinations and recipes for herbal tea blends.
In general add sweet orange to calming blends, and
bitter orange to more stimulating herbal blends.
